coperta da sci

3/4 oz Calvados (Morin Selection)
3/4 oz Amaro Braulio
3/4 oz Cocchi Sweet Vermouth
1/4 oz Crème de Cacao (Bols)

Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail coupe, and garnish with an orange twist.
Two Tuesdays ago, I selected Kara Newman's Nightcap book and honed in on Kelly Thorn's Coperta Da Sci created Empire State South in Atlanta. The name translated to "ski lodge blanket" which made it seem like it was too early in the year to try it, but I was lured in by the call for Braulio. Once assembled, the drink showcased an orange, caramel, and grape bouquet to the nose. Next, grape and caramel notes continued on into the sip where they were followed by apple, caramel, bitter, chocolate, and mint flavors on the swallow.
